[Street car, Matamoros, Mexico]

Description:

Postcard of a streetcar drawn by a mule or donkey. The streetcar is being pulled along a track in the center of a street that is bordered by buildings. The picture shows Matamoros, Mexico across the border from Brownsville, Texas. There is a letter on the back of the postcard addressed to "Miss Maria Sanchy" from "E. M." that reads, "Ni la ausencia y la distancia, ni el tiempo de no [v]erte; por ningunas sircustancias he de dejar de quererte, yours for ever." (Loosely: "Neither the absence and the distance, nor the time since I have seen you; under no circumstances have I stopped loving you.")
